Morrison's Writing Style in Beloved - Not too long after the Civil War and the Emancipation Proclamation, Sethe, the mother who murdered her child to protect her baby from a lifetime of slavery, has yet to know the true meaning of freedom. Such a controversial, hard to swallow plot is certain to stimulate a reader’s mind. Too often, however, critically scrutinized for its symbolic story and not adequately appreciated for the vivid metaphors, imperative to the understanding of the post-Civil War slavery. Morrison’s metaphors in her writing serves as a constant reminder of Sethe’s considerably enslaved life, bound to her guilt, her past life and her haunting memories....   [tags: essays research papers] 1327 words

Justifying the Paradoxical Nature of Mothering in Toni Morrison's Beloved - Given American obsessions with male mythologies, the writers of American fiction seem to challenge the basic assumptions of American culture. Specially, the Black female writers create and challenge ideals in representing the mother. While on the one hand we see recurring use of the Good mother of mythology, and virtues associated with the life principle (birth, warmth, nourishment, protection, fertility, growth, abundance, etc.). On the other hand. we also see dark and mysterious mothers performing negative roles associated with the Earth Mother....   [tags: motherhood, maternity, black american fiction]

Beloved: The Human Condition - Toni Morrison's novel, Beloved, reveals the effects of human emotion and its power to cast an individual into a struggle against him or herself. In the beginning of the novel, the reader sees the main character, Sethe, as a woman who is resigned to her desolate life and isolates herself from all those around her. Yet, she was once a woman full of feeling: she had loved her husband Halle, loved her four young children, and loved the days of the Clearing. And thus, Sethe was jaded when she began her life at 124 Bluestone Road-- she had loved too much....   [tags: essays research papers] 962 words

Toni Morrison and Beloved - Toni Morrison was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for her novel Beloved, a novel whose popularity and worth earned her the Nobel Prize in literature the first ever awarded to a black female author.  Born in the small town of Larain, Ohio, in 1931, to George and Ramah Willis Wofford, Morrison's birth name is Chloe Anthony Wofford (Gates and Appiah  ix).  Morrison describes the actions of her central character in Beloved, as:  the ultimate love of a mother; the outrageous claim of a slave.  In this statement we find an expression of the general themes of Morrison's mainly naturalistic works.  One of these is the burden of the past or history (i.e....   [tags: Toni Morrison Essays]

Comparing Beloved and Night - Comparing Beloved and Night     The two novels I am writing about are "Night" by Elie Wiesel and "Beloved," by Toni Morrison.  Beloved tells about slavery and an ex-slave mother's struggle with a past which is projected as the haunting of her people.  It tells the story of Sethe, a mother compelled to kill her child, rather than let the child live a life of slavery.  Toni Morrison uses ghosts and the supernatural to create an enhanced acceptance of the human condition and the struggled survival of the Black American.            The novel is set in Ohio in the 1880's.  The Civil War had been won, slavery had been abolished, however, the memories of slavery still remain.  Although the st...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 2450 words

Beloved - Overall Summary - Beloved - Overall Summary One of the most common reader responses to Beloved is speechlessness. Readers attempt to deal with that speechlessness by trying to determine whether Sethe's attempt to kill her children was morally justified or not. These almost always seem like stilted, insufficient answers to a beautiful, poetic, and profoundly disturbing novel. It is as though the novel haunts the reader until he or she incorporates it into some structure of moral judgment. Perhaps trying to overcome the speechlessness with an awkward attempt at moral reasoning is not the most productive way to respond to Beloved....   [tags: Essays Papers] 837 words

Beloved: Analysis - From the beginning, Beloved focuses on the import of memory and history. Sethe struggles daily with the haunting legacy of slavery, in the form of her threatening memories and also in the form of her daughter’s aggressive ghost. For Sethe, the present is mostly a struggle to beat back the past, because the memories of her daughter’s death and the experiences at Sweet Home are too painful for her to recall consciously.

One writes as a Southerner and a historian who is defending southern slaveholders and draws upon contemporary racial theory to justify the system as beneficial to African Americans. The other writes as an African-American woman who is looking to write women into history and in doing so, add a female voice to the past.

Selfishness: A Natural Tendency - According to Adam Smith, it is not greed or selfishness, but the desire for sympathy that motivates human beings both socially and economically.  People engage in a societal game of appearance to maximize the amount of sympathy received from others.  When a person is perceived to benefit society, they are blessed with the approval or sympathy of those around them. This approval, in turn, makes the individual feel worthy. Smith argues that the desire to have our wealth recognized is not greedy, but a natural tendency.  He suggests that this inclination develops the world, and furthers humanity.  In the Theory of Moral Sentiments, Smith introduces the idea that wealth not only increases the am...   [tags: adam smith, beloved, wealth, greatness]

Comparing Love in the Film, Secrets and Lies and Toni Morrison's Beloved - Possessive Love in Secrets and Lies and Beloved      The word “freedom” is subject to various degrees of interpretation in the sense that it can be used in more than one context.  One definition of freedom is the idea of having your own sense of self without the control of others.  On the other hand, a lack of freedom is the idea of feeling trapped and smothered in a situation one has no control over.  Freedom can relate to school, relationships, or even within oneself.  A lack of freedom can have nothing to do with other people but with the ball and chain that can be placed on by oneself.  Of course the outside world will be involved, but the pain of feeling trapped comes from the frust...   [tags: Movie Film comparison compare contrast]

It is the word that the country we live in is defined by. Everyone’s interpretation of freedom varies because everybody has experienced different levels of freedom.

My Beloved - The rain falls ominously around us where we sit huddled underneath a fallen tree. Our clothes are blood stained and shredded. Ena huddles against my side, her face hidden under my arms. I wrap a protective arm around her and look out into the misty surroundings, my senses alert for any sign of pursuit. A flash of lightning illuminates the small copse of trees followed almost momentarily by the distant rumble of thunder. Now is our one and only chance.

Essay on Gender in William Shakespeare's Sonnets - Gender in Shakespeare’s Sonnets      Much has been made (by those who have chosen to notice) of the fact that in Shakespeare's sonnets, the beloved is a young man. It is remarkable, from a historical point of view, and raises intriguing, though unanswerable, questions about the nature of Shakespeare's relationship to the young man who inspired these sonnets. Given 16th-Century England's censorious attitudes towards homosexuality, it might seem surprising that Will's beloved is male. However, in terms of the conventions of the poetry of idealized, courtly love, it makes surprisingly little difference whether Will's beloved is male or female; to put the matter more strongly, in some ways it...   [tags: Shakespeare Sonnet] 1781 words
